Deaf and hearing impaired people can make music. As an example, Dame Evelyn Glennie
from Scottland is one of the most famous drummers in the world, although she is nearly
deaf since she was 12 years old.
Drums and percussion instruments are loud and create intensive vibrations. This way
we are able to feel them directly with our body - through those vibrations and the
stimulus of our hands.
Together with Bildungshaus Schloss Retzhof I built up this workshop for deaf and
hearing impaired people. Let’s dipp into the music together and learn how
- to hold and strike your drum
- to play original rhythms like Calypso, Sirto and Samba
- to feel the different sounds of the drum
- to do different things with both hands and develop our concentration
Location: Bildungshaus Schloss Retzhof, A-8430 Leitring/Wagna
